"I am old and suffering from several health complications such as diabetes and blood pressure. Many people have suggested that five days is too long. I hope the katha survives, maybe in short and concise form," Desai said.
Desai is the son of Gandhi's personal secretary Mahadev Desai and has memories of his childhood spent with Gandhi. He had authored a biography of Gandhi entitled Maru Jivan Ej Mari Vani (My Life is My Message).
The katha, which began in 2004, is mostly is a narrative of Gandhi and events related to him. It began from the campus of Gujarat Vidyapith but soon travelled across more than a dozen states and abroad, including England, the US and Canada.
